  • Description of CSIRO
  • CSIRO, the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation, is Australia's national science agency and one of the largest and most diverse research agencies in the world.
    With 6500+ staff in 55 locations across Australia and the world, we are focussed on addressing Australia’s major national challenges.
    CSIRO is a powerhouse of ideas, technologies and skills, for building prosperity, growth, health and sustainability: we are nation builders.
    CSIRO holds a unique and differentiated role in Australia’s National Innovation System because of our size, our breadth and depth of capability, and our ability to conduct large-scale, multidisciplinary research focussed on major national challenges. We bring together the right people from across multiple science domains to work together and produce an outcome.
    As at 30 June 2009, CSIRO has 161 active commercial and potentially revenue generating technology licences
    CSIRO’s partnering arrangements have led to us having an equity shareholding in more than 20 companies.
    With a proud record of over 80 years of achievement, we are a trusted source for innovative ideas and practical technologies that deliver impact.
    We are trusted advisors, not just in the eyes of the government, and our partners, but also in the eyes of the Australian community. We have worked hard to build this trust, and as a result, some of our discoveries are used in our lives every day, and include items such as aerogard, softly wool wash, extended wear contact lenses, and our polymer bank notes.
    We work for Australia, industry, government, and business.
    We are a diverse organisation, and our work cuts across a broad range of science disciplines – our national footprint, our scale and depth is a great strength, and is vital to our ability to deliver to the communities we serve. We conduct science that has impact and is supported by national and international partnerships.
    Our National Flagship Program demonstrates our ongoing commitment to addressing national challenges, including those in the areas of water, energy and health.
  • CSIRO operates in a matrix. This is to ensure we have the flexibility we need to be able to provide the right mix of skills and talent for major projects; pulling the right people from all across the organisation to form multidisciplinary teams. CSIRO understands often the most successful science comes from crossing boundaries, and working in a matrix structure gives us the ability to do this.
    More formally, CSIRO is responsible to the Department of Innovation, Industry, Science and Research (DIISR). As a statuary authority, CSIRO also reports to its Board that is responsible for the efficient performance of the organisation and developing its policy direction, and provides direction to the Chief Executive.
    The Chief Executive is responsible for all of CSIRO’s activities. She is supported by CSIRO’s Executive Team (ET) and Executive Management Council (EMC)
    The ET is responsible for the development and implementation of CSIRO’s strategy, and the EMC provides a forum for sharing and discussing issues relating to the management and future strategy for CSIRO.
    CSIRO also operates a joint venture, Food Science Australia, and is an active participant in Cooperative Research Centres (CRCs) and Centres of Excellence.
  • One of the largest scientific research programs ever undertaken in Australia
    Complex large-scale challenges require sophisticated cross-boundary responses
    Focused on areas of major national significance
    The best and brightest of Australia’s research and development system
    Committed to delivering research solutions that target clearly defined goals
    Their larger scale, longer timeframes and clear focus on adoption of research outputs are designed to maximise the achievement of the Flagship goals
    Additional support from the Australian Government facilitated the launch of three new Flagships in 2007, which include Climate Adaptation; Minerals Down Under; and Future Manufacturing.
    The Flagships consolidated their position during 2006–07 as a significant and successful model for addressing national challenges critical to Australia’s future.
    The Flagship initiative was reviewed by a largely external panel (led by Professor Robin Batterham, former Chief Scientist) in late June 2006. The panel concluded that ‘the Flagships offer the most promising mechanisms yet to drive large-scale activity addressing Australia’s National Research Priorities in a collaborative, cooperative and intensively managed manner’.
    The findings of the Flagship review are supported by independent analysis commissioned by CSIRO from economic assessment company ACIL Tasman, which indicated that a selection of activity in just a small sample of Flagship research areas has created options conservatively valued in excess of $1 billion in a relatively short time as a result of work already done.
    Flagships (to achieve long term goals)
    Climate Adaptation Flagship overview
    Enabling Australia to adapt more effectively to the impacts of climate change and variability and informing national planning, regulation and investment decisions.
    Goal: Equip Australia with practical and effective adaptation options to climate change and variability and in doing so create $3 billion per annum in net benefits by 2030
    Energy Transformed Flagship overview
    The Energy Transformed Flagship is developing clean affordable energy and transport technologies for a sustainable future - the first steps towards a hydrogen economy.
    We collaborate with national and global partners, and are seeking to deliver energy solutions for a sustainable future.
    Goal: To halve greenhouse gas emissions and double the efficiency of the nation's new energy generation, supply, and end use, and to position Australia for a future hydrogen economy
    Food Futures Flagship overview
    The Food Futures Flagship aims to transform Australia's international competitiveness in the agrifood sector  through the application of frontier technologies to high potential industries. By applying frontier technologies to high-potential industries, the Flagship's goal is to add A$3 billion annually of value to the Australian agrifood sector. We aim to transform the international competitiveness of the Australian agrifood sector.
    Goal: To transform the international competitiveness and add A$3 billion annually to the Australian agrifood sector by the application of frontier technologies to high-potential industries
    Future Manufacturing Flagship overview
    Using nanotechnology to create a new wave of niche industries and add value to existing high-value segments of the manufacturing sector.
    Goal: To support the development of niche manufacturing businesses based on nanotechnology, to be worth in excess of A$3 billion per year by 2020
    Light Metals Flagship overview
    We’re exploring new ways to produce alumina, aluminium, magnesium and titanium, and the products made from them, so that manufacturers can reduce costs and pollution and improve performance.
    Goal: To lead a global revolution in light metals, doubling export income and generating significant new industries for Australia by the 2020s while reducing environmental impact
    Minerals Down Under Flagship overview
    The Minerals Down Under Flagship is planning to help transform the Australian minerals industry with revolutionary new technologies and ideas to solve technical challenges that will be associated with Australian mining operations in the future.
    Goal: To assist the Australian minerals industry to exploit new resources with an in-situ value of A$1 trillion by the year 2030, and more than double the associated services and technology sector to A$10 billion per year by 2015
    Preventative Health Flagship overview
    Preventative Health Flagship is working to improve the health and wellbeing of Australians through research into prevention and early detection of common chronic diseases.
    Goal: To improve the health and wellbeing of Australians and save $2 billion in annual direct health costs by 2020 through the prevention and early detection of chronic diseases
    Sustainable Agriculture
    Focussed on reducing the carbon footprint of Australia’s land use whilst achieving the productivity gains needed for prosperous agricultural and forest industries and global food security
    Goal: To secure Australian agricultural and forest industries by increasing productivity by 50% and reducing net carbon emissions per unit of food and fibre by at least 50% between now and 2030
    Water for a Healthy Country Flagship overview
    The Water for a Healthy Country Flagship is a national research program addressing one of Australia’s most pressing natural resource issues – sustainable management of our water resources.
    Goal: To provide water managers with options that meet water needs to 2030, creating $1 billion per annum of net economic benefit, while maintaining or improving the condition of aquatic ecosystems
    Wealth from Oceans Flagship overview
    The Wealth from Oceans Flagship, together with its research partners, is providing Australia with a key capacity to discover, protect and realise the benefits of our ocean territories.
    Goal: To position Australia by 2020 as an international benchmark in the delivery of economic, social and environmental wealth based on leadership in understanding ocean systems and processes
  • a comprehensive scientific assessment of current and future water availability in major water systems across Australia to provide a consistent framework for future water policy decisions.

  • One-second SRTM DEM project will delvier a series of related elevation models, derived from the SRTM data that include:
    New techniques are being developed for deriving the best possible hydrologically-sound DEM.
    DEM, a bare-earth digital elevation model
    DEM-S, a smoothed bare-earth digital elevation model
    DEM-H, a hydrologically enforced digital elevation model.
    Each model covers the Australian continent and near-shore islands at a resolution of one second (about 30 m).
  • Toolbox: predefined profiles for mapping, other standard UML profiles
  • What is the registration approach that we are using in our Solid Ground toolset?
    At the centre is the repository of models and other registered artefacts to support the models.
    These models may be of the concepts, specific implementation profiles, or data products.
    Once the modeller acts to register the model,
    It goes through the necessary governance
    It is registered with the appropriate associations to other registered models
    Then made available to the user community
    The community can download the model in the context of referenced models
  • By establishing OGC and other web services, clients can use their own ‘portal’ of choice and access multiple data providers
    The AuScope Discovery portal is just one potential client.
    It’s not about AN application, its about many different kinds of applications, many of which data providers cannot even begin to guess at (let alone afford to build)‏
    The Goal is interoperability….
    SISS is a mechanism to achieve interoperability via 3 standardisation areas - schematic, content and service standardisation
  • Talk through this slide – what are the components and why are needed
    Exploitation of OGC services for the delivery of web maps, features (data) and coverages
  • Now to achieve standardisation within SISS we’ve utilised…..
